I’m not someone who asks for a lot for Mothers Day but a lie in and something handmade would always pretty close to the top of my list! I think handmade gifts are a lot nicer than shop bought ones and I know that most kids prefer getting creative to being dragged around a shop as well. Today I’m sharing some Mothers Day crafts for toddlers and preschoolers that will make fantastic gifts and keepsakes as well as Mothers Day cards that toddlers can make, perfect for ensuring a gorgeous handmade day full of lovely presents that will really mean something!
Mothers Day Crafts for Toddlers
The crafts that I’m sharing today are all designed to be suitable for toddlers and preschoolers.
As you will know though, children at this age develop rapidly so take a look through the list for the ideas which are most suitable to your child’s age, abilities and most importantly to their interests.
It’s quite a long list (and it’s possible that 30 cards and gifts might be a little bit much for one year?) so it’s a good list to bookmark or pin to return to next year as well.
Because I’m sharing a lot of Mothers Day crafts today I’ve split it into two categories, Mothers Day cards and Mothers Day gifts toddlers can make. I’ve also added the details of a free Mothers Day colouring page that would make a nice activity too!
There’s a lot ideas in both lists and as we get closer to the day I’m sure I’ll add a few more of my favourites in too as well as any new crafts that we do.
You can find each of the crafts listed in the order that they appear in the collages below but of course there are more ideas than pictures so make sure that you have a good look through the list to find some new favourites.
Free Mothers Day Colouring Page
Grab your crayons and get your copy of this free Mothers Day colouring page! You can use it as a quick Mothers Day activity, pop it on the front of a card or pop it in a frame and give it as a gift.
